A toast to your journey into a mystical future





A toast to your journey into a mystical future
Honoring those Who Choose to Make This Real-Life Journey Out of the Chaos of Our World and into an Empowering, Mystical Future

A Toast to Your Journey is a small, powerful, mystical, nonfiction book. It outlines the steps the author, Shari Sylvester, took on her own quest from here to there—from this chaotic, troubled world we live in today into a new reality, a new beginning for those who choose to travel there. It is written as a general guide for teens and young adults, but it's open to all who are open to it.
     Have you had enough lack of integrity, discrimination and corruption in this world? Enough anger and pain in your life, and in the lives of those around you? What if, out of chaos comes change? Are you ready for that change?
     Shari Sylvester writes that you, teens and young adults, have never accepted the dysfunction and inefficiency in the world today, and that you're adaptable, open to change and love adventure. Will you choose to not only take this challenging journey, but in turn, lead others? There are enough of you, and you're young, strong, smart, brave and well prepared by movies, books and games. She feels you are here at the right time, and more than ready for this fabulous, sci-fi-like future. Could it be just what you've been waiting, or even searching, for?
     Each of you would bring great value to this journey and its destination—no exceptions. Whatever you've done in this life is not the real you. You can shift into this new, high-vibration reality with no effect on your current life with family, friends, religion or anything else, but you will be an enhanced you in a subtly different life space as you release your emotional life-wound pain and increase your personal power through your own inner guidance. You are always the one in control of your situation.
     Are you ready to gather your powers and go forward to a wonderous new future? Now is the time and this book shows you the way.

Generic Logos - How To Spot And Avoid Them


We have seen logo designs and feel like we have seen them before, or they do not seem too unique. It is where you have probably come across a generic logo design that is not doing much for your brand.
Your logo design is often the first interaction that potential customers have with your brand that is why it is important for your logo design be effective. A logo design is much more than just an image or a text which states that it has to be original and creative. For a brand that wants to attract customers and stand out from the competition must have a compelling and attractive logo design that can deliver the right message to the audience.

Logo designers know and value the importance of professional logo design to any business either it is large, small or just a startup. It represents the company, it tells their story and symbolizes their brand identity to the world. No matter how good your products or services are, if your logo design is poor, you are going to have a rigid time attracting customers towards your brand. Yes, it is necessary for the products to deliver value but a brand must first attract the customers through a unique logo design.

What Is Generic Logo Design?

Even the most experienced logo designers in the industry encounter challenges when it comes to creating highly professional and affordable logo design for their clients. Generic logo design is overused and clichéd logo designs that are often seen in most of the designs like,

§  Abstract logo designs
§  Inside Box logo designs
§  Swoosh People logo designs
§  Word marks logo designs

Industries like accounting, automotive, wellness, love, nature and photography have these generic logo designs. When logo designers use the same concepts in a logo design over and over again, then they are arguably no longer visual and are not able to make their trademark.

Avoiding Generic Logo Design:

Maintaining quality standards are must in your design process. Clichéd and overused design concepts are gone past. Learn to:

§  Make your design unique to your own creative ideas.
§  Not use stock images, clip-art or purchased vectors in logo design, illustration design or icon design contest.
§  Acquire proper license when needed while making any purchase for the design.
§  Do not submit placeholder designs or use personal watermarks.
§  Do not Copy, Plagiarize or Steal Someone Else’s Logo Design.
§  Do not have a Vague or Overly-Complex Design.
§  Keep things simple, clear and meaningful.
§  Choose balanced and legible typefaces that can both be read in extreme sizes.
§  Do not Design for building your portfolio Instead of the Client’s Needs.
§  Remember that it is not all about you.

What’s next?

Creative and appealing are two words that should fit a professional logo design, neither of which apply to the overused, clichéd, swoosh around a globe mark. Professional logo design is far away from common design elements and often employ safe and familiar symbols that give them an original twist. That “original twist” is a challenge for a designer where the designer takes the literal concept and making it original by adding creativity, style and the brand’s message.

It was life changing




It was life changing
"Ms. Ortiz has the capacity in her writing to make you feel she is speaking directly to you! Her telling, through a fictional character, about her experience with breast cancer at the age of 37 is moving, funny and, in the end, triumphant. The grace with which her character, Luna, navigates her breast cancer diagnosis is a blueprint for how to handle life's challenges and hurdles. I couldn't put the book down and, when I finished, I felt as if I had lost touch with a cherished friend. I hope she writes a sequel so we can continue to follow and learn from her approach to this journey of life that we are all on." ~Amazon Reader

Smart and fiercely independent, thirty-seven-year-old Luna Rivera had it all. She was fresh out of grad school—officially a PhD. Her team, the Oakland A's were in first place, and it was only two months into the season. Plus, she was in love.

And then, the shit hit the fan. 

One second she was laying on the sofa, watching an old black and white movie—The Thin Man, about a screwball husband and wife team known for solving murders—and just as Myrna Loy's character fell flat on her face while being pulled into a restaurant by her dog, Luna's life came to a screeching halt.


In a matter of seconds, fear hurled her into a world of confusion, uncertainty, and despair. Luna had inadvertently slipped her hand under her T-shirt and touched her breast. That's when life as she knew it vanished.

Is it a gift or a curse?





Is it a gift or a curse?
Pain rips through her body and bores deep into her soul. It vibrates to the tips of her toes and to the fingertips. Even to the ends of her long dark hair. She needs it to stop because it could kill her. How can she make it stop? Has she ever felt this kind of pain? She can't remember. All she knows is that it is killing her now. Why? Can't she be strong?
     Pain rips through her body and bores deep into her soul. It vibrates to the tips of her toes and to the fingertips. Even to the ends of her long dark hair. She needs it to stop because it could kill her. How can she make it stop? Has she ever felt this kind of pain? She can't remember. All she knows is that it is killing her now. Why? Can't she be strong?
     It is embarrassing, and she wants to know why people cause pain in other people. It's not right. Do they honestly think that they can get rid of their pain by projecting it onto someone else? It's not fair. Make it stop. She thinks she should be able to stop it, but realizes that if it is not her responsibility, though, who would do it? She should be strong enough. She knows she is different. Not because she feels pain- everybody feels pain. But wait! Narcissists don't feel pain. And they want to feel normal which they can't– and aren't.       
     Imagine a world –even if it were just your own personal world– without pain. She knows she is different because she feels other people's pain. It burns like it is burning in her now. She cries. She must do something to help others stop hurting and now she feels the pain spreading through her own body, heart, and soul. She doesn't know how to make it stop but she knows she must find out. People cannot survive pain like this! We are only human. Think of all the things people do to relieve pain. The pain is a wide-open white space; searing, moving, flexing, and reshaping itself. She needs to enter it, but it hurts, really hurts, to try to move into it. Because she is different.
     Carly is an empath. She feels other people's pain. She is acutely aware of being different than most people but has no idea what to do about it. If it isn't enough to be in constant turmoil because the world is so full of maliciousness, hate, and evil, 
     Carly seems to have no trouble finding plenty of pain of her own. She is a joyous soul yet deeply intuitive and introspective. 

What will she do with her gift, if you can call it that? 
How will she survive the trials and challenges 
that she walks right into all the time?
 Can a person so sensitive tolerate so much ill will? 

     All Carly has ever done is love. She loves to learn and grow. She loves all people, big and small, dark or light, sad or happy. She is as close to being free of judgement and prejudice as a person can be. But Carly is a sociopath magnet. Maybe these emotional vampires sense her strong sensitivity and empathy. Perhaps Carly is a target because she is genuinely good. The problem is: Carly has no idea how to defend herself or fight back.
     Carly is catapulted head first into a nightmare. This nightmare, however, is really happening. Or is it?

She dared to be the change

 


She dared to be the change
This deeply personal account of life from rural Louisiana to the banking board room is both inspirational and triumphant. In Dare to be the Change, Annella shares personal and professional experiences vivid detail to reveal how we can overcome challenging situations and make a significant difference in the lives of others. —Janet Melancon, Executive Coach & HR Consultant, Janet Melancon Associates
In Dare to be the Change, Annella Metoyer courageously shares the details of her life's challenges, her family's dedication to positive change as well as offers hope for readers through her struggles and accomplishments. Starting with the integration of her small town public school, she encounters a life-changing experience that sets her on a path of "being the change." 

Not only did she face the challenges when women were not the voice in the room, but she also did so as a person of color.  From coworkers to disgruntled customers' discrimination, she lived the evolution of attitudes.  With each adversity, she became more determined to take the challenge and turn it into an advantage. 

Annella Metoyer was blessed to experience many firsts.  She was the first person of color to become a cheerleader. She was the first person of color employed by a local bank and ultimately, she achieved the position of the City President for a major, national corporate bank. Her journey later took an unexpected turn when she transitioned from employee to entrepreneur.
Dare to be the Change will resonate with anyone that has ever faced adversities. As you read the story, you will rejoice in the strength and tenacity that Annella finds within to help others and to make this world a better place.

A chakra book that won't put you to sleep





A chakra book that won't put you to sleep
True knowledge is the one that comes through direct experience. Teresa, has done an amazing job to reflect how life experiences are the best teachers for us to learn, grow and succeed.  Teresa has an incredible  understanding of the chakras and energy systems and she knows how to pass it along to others to reflect upon and initiate their own journey in the world of energy.  I am proud of having her as my student. ~Mirta Romberg,  Registered Yoga Teacher and Therapist
   Using chakras and art is like having a template to achieve balance, forgiveness, and peace. Life is challenging; our world often seems chaotic and tumultuous. Learning to assess and treat your chakra imbalances helps you to cope with these challenges and to find inner peace.

   Through the use of true stories, both her own and those of others, Teresa McCallum provides examples of balanced and imbalanced chakras.  She offers simple activities, methods, and art suggestions to help others achieve personal growth and inner balance. Teresa's background as a nurse working in mental health, as well as being a visual artist, lead her to develop a unique way of looking at spirituality, self-healing, and use of the ancient chakra system. Regardless of whether the chakra system is new to you or you are an experienced yogini (or yogi), Finding Balance and Forgiveness Through Chakras and Art will provide artistic insight and guidance.

     In creating this book, I surveyed hundreds of people to discover their secrets of success and resilience. I was overwhelmed with the honesty and meaningful responses I received, but until I had fully explored and become engaged in the chakra system, I didn't have a cohesive method to assist people in overcoming their challenges. There are seven chakras, and my seven categories mirrored them perfectly. After exploring and experiencing the energetic transformative power of working with chakras, I realized what the focus of my book would be because art had provided therapy for both me and my patients. So, I was able to unleash my inspired voice which allowed me to complete the book I had conceived many years ago. My personal experiences and the experiences of others have allowed me to create this introduction to healing your chakras by using art therapeutically to find your balance and learn how to let go and forgive.
